Port of Montreal Labour Dispute

The Freight Management Association of Canada provided the following information.

In a memo, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 375 informed its members on Sunday that the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) issued a final offer to the union late on Friday, March 12.

The union president stresses that this is an offer, not an agreement in principle between the parties. There are no details on the content of the MEA offer.

The memo says the union executive committee will undertake a detailed analysis of the offer and submit it for a vote by the members.”
